by Charles H.H. Scobie
Sir Charles G.D. Roberts (1860–1943), the Father of Canadian Literature, spent the first fourteen years of his life in Westcock, in the Tantramar area of south-eastern New Brunswick.
This book shows how his boyhood in the Tantramar profoundly influenced much of Roberts’ later work: his historical writings, his animal stories, his novels and above all his poetry.
With the help of over thirty illustrations and three maps the book also provides the visitor with a guide to Roberts Country.
